Round Corner? They are very nice indeed.
Coincidentally I have just read that Yeastie Boys’ core beers are now all brewed at West Berks, with specials contracted to Round Corner.
Just come along. It’s a fantastic afternoon. Just bring along some decent beer. Doesn’t have to be
A mega whale!
It helps if you like kebab on a pizza mind!
I won’t update the spreadsheet yet but thanks to @Erzengel I have a few 750ml bottles that no-one should have ticked.
Just added another beer to the spreadsheet, a little something I picked up at a 7/11 store and will be flying it home with me for all you lucky people.
I’ve added one.
I have now added one.
Added my third and final beer today.
right, it’s in my calendar, I’ll try not to plan a brew this time
Start thinking about the beers you’re bringing and looking at train times, starting a bit earlier this year (12:00 ish), so don’t be late.
Also: how about us all taking a snack to share rather than ordering a gallon of Pizza’s? A large bag of crisps, or whatever, even a couple of pork pies.
It’s nearly 4 months out … the beers I’m bringing probably haven’t been brewed yet !
As for food … pizza for me … it was a particular highlight last year !
Folks can of course do as they wish on the snack front.
I’d also take 12ish with a pinch of salt.
Most folks arrived into Bingoham 1030 for 1100 last year, did a few pre Cotts city centre beers first then headed out.
Go with the flow hence ‘ish’ !
We normally get beers from the taps first as Cotts are giving up the venue for free, so I feel it is good to grab a few, I’m going for Pizza as they were awesome last year, donner kebab pizza is god tier.
so Cotts 12am
Bottle Tasting 1pm
Pizza around 3pm
No problem @RichTheVillan, happy to play what ever.
I can eat Pizza as well as any bloke, and buy some tap beers at Cotts, plus some bottles/cans to take home.
I am just adding the beers I had at an International tasting in Brugge before the beer festival. I didn’t realize how strong they all were, no wonder I struggled to get out of bed on the Saturday. Everyone must have taken uber strong stuff.
No need to do that at Cotteridge everybody, some normal beers will be fine!
My plans for this year:
a) Get the recipe for the pizza. Tres magnifique.
b) Don’t book a 6:30 train home. Although I got an automatic refund for the second train I booked. I didn’t pick a ticket up as I thought it was an e-ticket. The guard let me off as she could see I was a tipsy simpleton.
We definitely need to swill some ale, and put money in the Cotts till. They look after us really well, considering we’re probably a collective pain in the arse to them, taking up a huge chunk of the tap room and leaving behind a massive pile of empty bottles. To kick the tasting off at the stroke of 12 would be poor form, I’d say.
